EF-S limitation (can't mount to FF)
It's been suggested that it might be EF.. and the patent-drawings seems to have a relatively wide back element.. might just be inaccurate drawings of course..

Ha ha. F/4 zooms have their place, of course, but I am with you on the fast glass: fast AF, shallow dof, nice bokeh, bright viewfinder. Two limitations: 1) price (surmountable) 2) weight (sometimes surmountable)

My 2 cents:

1. A new kit lens with a new body, say the 60D or 1Ds mk IV. Canon announced new bodies regularily, and has announced - on average over the last decade - one kit lens per year.

2. New TS-E 45mm & 90mm. Considering the TS-E 17mm & 24mm were announced 18 months ago, I think Canon would announce new TS-E 45mm & 90mm before the end of 2011.

3. Primes. I'll put my money on something like a new EF 180mm f/2 Macro H-IS USM, or EF 28mm f/1.4L USM.

i would love more primes, because i love my fast lenses, but those sound highly unlikely.  the 180 will not get 1 2/3 stops faster all at once (though it would be awesome) and a 28 is too close to the 24.  I hope the 24-105 goes to 2.8, or some zoom lens gets a constant f/2.  my viewfinder is just too spoiled by f/1.4 to settle for an f/4 zoom, no matter how sharp it is.

Actually, there's a rumor (the discussion was sent to the bodies forum) that the 35mm prime will get an upgrade, with an f/1.8 max aperture. This sounds surprising, but as I wrote before - I think it's about time Canon re-did it's cheaper 20mm-24mm-28mm-35mm primes with improved optics, f/1.8 aperture, and USM.

I am excited to see the 35 1.8 and how it holds up.  I hope it will be a good lens, something that I can put on my 5d classic and take some really cool lowlight pictures.

The 90mm TS isn't that bad, but a redo of the TS lenses is actually a good guess, IMHO.

3. Primes. I'll put my money on something like a new EF 180mm f/2 Macro H-IS USM, or EF 28mm f/1.4L USM.

Forgot a ".8" here? The 200mm f/2 L IS USM is a rather huge lens, a 180mm f/2 wouldn't likely be much smaller. I think that'd be an awfully big macro lens...

<p><strong>…. another soon after?<br />

<span style=\"font-weight: normal;\">I’m told we can expect 3 new lenses to be shown off at the Canon EXPO and Photokina.</span></strong><strong> </strong>Canon lauched 3 lenses with the 7D last year, so it’s not unprecedented.</p>
<p>A 4th lens would be announced in the November/December timeframe with a “new camera body”.</p>
<p>Sadly, no confirmation on which lenses will arrive.</p>
<p><strong><span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">c</span>r</strong></p>


We just had four lenses announced (fishsye zoom, 70-300, 300, and 400), with two more announced to be shown at photokina (500 and 600).

Has the announcement been made earlier than expected, or can we expect a 5th lens to be announced at November / December ?

Nobody has mentioned the stupidest thing about this lens. It's not the variable aperture. It's not the slow f/5.6 at the 300mm end of the range. And it's not the salty price.

It's the zoom ring out in FRONT of the focus ring, the opposite of any other lens in the Canon line (that I know of, correct me if I'm wrong). Imagine going back and forth between, say, a 24-105 f/4.0 and this lens. You'd go to zoom, but mess up your focus instead. That's the same deal breaker as on the Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8.

Un-flippin'-believable.

Damned. I allready thought I saw that or somethings.
It's true, that is F______ unbelievable.
This is indeed real stupid.
It's the same thing as using clockwise turning instead to zoom in (like Nikon).

The EF-S 15-85 has the zoom up front
The EF-S 17-85 same
The EF 28-135 same
The EF 100-300 same
